Renzo Sambo (17 January 1942 – 10 August 2009) was an Italian rower who had his best achievements in the coxed pairs, together with Primo Baran and coxswain Bruno Cipolla. They won a European title in 1967 and an Olympic gold in 1968.
Sambo then changed to the coxed fours, but with less success. During his career he won 15 national titles in various events. In retirement he worked as a coach with Circolo Ospedalieri Treviso, which organizes the Renzo Sambo Memorial Regatta since 2009.
